The Killers have said that they will "always" release a Christmas single as long as they are working together as a band.

Brandon Flowers of the group, who recently revealed their 2012 effort 'I Feel It In My Bones', spoke to The Guardian about why he loves penning the festive tracks, explaining that it is one process which feels free to him.

Discussing 'I Feel It In My Bones', Flowers said: "The Christmas song is always in the back of my mind. We release it every year on World AIDS Day, and it brings so much joy to this bubble that we’re in. So much is so serious: you know, deadlines and making gigs and travelling. And every year it just brings more smiles than anything else has. They’re such a blessing. This will be the seventh one, and as long as we’re going, there will always be a Killers Christmas song."

Meanwhile, The Killers will return to the UK in February to play the two shows at Manchester's MEN Arena that they were forced to postpone in November when singer Brandon Flowers lost his voice.

The shows will now take place on February 17 and 18, 2013. Tickets for the original shows remain valid for the rescheduled dates with the exception of standing tickets from the first show, which will be reissued to customers by their original ticketing agents.

Tickets for The Killers' forthcoming Wembley Stadium show next summer are on sale now. To check the availability of Killers tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
